The theme of Diane von Furstenbergs collection was ‘Beginnings’, and referred slightly to the anniversary of 9/11. “It’s bout light and what light can do and how light changes everything” she said to reporters. The designer started with white, and opened the show with her signature wrap dress. Not slinky but in crispy cotton with a full circle skirt. The rest of the collection was inspired by modern Africa, with lots of layers, textures, elegance and vibrant colors. There was also a bit of retro glamour in the collection, looking at the hair of the models (beehives), circle skirts, beaded dresses or tomboys in tailored Bermuda shorts and blazers.
